Instead of preparing for fashion shows, Ukrainian designer Ewa Herzog filled boxes with donations for Ukraine. In two weeks, together with the Austrian designer Marina Hoermanseder, she collected more than 600 tons of relief supplies, which were brought from Berlin to Ukraine by truck. Marina Hoermanseder stored her donations in her studio, which came from her 120,000 followers just hours after calling them on Instagram. Since Friday, Deutsche Bahn has taken over the organization of the transport. In normal times, both designers are an integral part of Fashion Week.
Yellow and blue colors will also dominate Berlin Fashion Week, which starts on Monday. You can already see that in the logo, which is yellow-blue. Canceling fashion shows, installations and performances entirely was as little of an issue in Berlin as it was in Milan and Paris. But pretending there isn’t a war is out of the question for most organizers.
For example, the Platte association, which is supported by the Pankow and Prenzlauer Berg district offices and makes Berlin fashion visible with a large shopping area on Alexanderplatz, invites you to a fashion show on the first day of the Fashion Week. Solidarity ribbons will be distributed to all, which are expected to remain clearly visible throughout Fashion Week.
Not only the profits from the tapes, but also the drinks and donations sold go to aid organizations. There were also discussions about the possibility of doing a fashion show, but in the end it was decided to do it. Models, completely normal people who were not chosen for their appearance but for their commitment, walk in front of large windows inside, and from the outside everyone can see what about 20 brands have designed.
Fashion designer Anja Gockel doesn’t just want her show to proceed as planned on Tuesday at the Adlon: “We tried to show help for Ukraine by showing the latest model in an all-yellow outfit with the Ukrainian flag instead.” . of a veil that she wears around her neck.” Also present are two Ukrainian models who fled their homeland.
This time, the Polish designer also forgoes a runway show altogether. david tomaszewskiI would prefer with your team offer assistance to humanitarian organizations in Ukraine and Poland, he said in a press release on Friday.
That fashion parades on Wednesday with a parade of the Ukrainian designer Jean Gritzfeldt will end was already certain before the war. Although the designer cannot leave his hometown of Kiev, his fashion will be exhibited in Berlin.
